Nevermind=Nirvana
maybe I will repost later=I will be reborn
 :) = Smiling all the time

So it's someone who has reached Nirvana who will be reborn as someone who smiles a lot.

Duh, it's Dalai Lama.  (nod)

There may be a pretence of belief that something that is not a riddle, is a riddle, somewhere in this post. This is due mainly to comedic effect, or the attempt at same.

Well, actually it is sort of tied (the erased riddle).
It was the so-called MU-puzzle, by Hofstadter. From his book, Goedel-Escher-Bach, where he mentions buhhdism at times (although for flourish, mostly).

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MU_puzzle

In my version (which is the same, just the symbols change), the system is the KYR, and the puzzle is if from that you can get the KR.

By the way, I just dled your Duress game and will have a go :)
